Workflow Actions 2010: Error Create Site Action

Feb 24, 2011 at 7:50 AM


Thanks for this great open source project! I've installed the 2010 SharePoint Designer Workflow action but when I try to use the Create Site Action I keep getting the following error:

A list, survey, discussion board, or document library with the specified title already exists in this Web site. Please choose another title.

I'm trying to create a STS#0 Team Site at an absolute URL. So i fill in the URL field of the action with: where teamA is the team site i'm trying to create.

Any ideas what might be going wrong?

Kind regards,

I've tried to reproduce the error but with no luck. If the site already exists I get the following error: The Web site address "/sites/test/" is already in use.

Hi Christian,

Thanks for your reply. We have build the solution ourselves and now everything seems to work okay. We also found that the "Powershell" activity was missing in the build solution.

Hi Thijs,

thanks for the hint your right, PowerActivity was missing in the build. I've added it.
